Meeting Policies

No Session Recording

No EA sessions are recorded. As a condition of your attendance at the meeting, you agree not to audio or video record any portion of the educational sessions held at the meeting. Any violation of this condition may result in your ejection from the meeting without a refund of your registration fee. In addition, you agree that the CCA shall be entitled to any costs incurred as a result of any violation of this provision, including payment of CCA’s attorneys’ fees. Violators may be prohibited from attending future meetings/events.

Photography and Videography Policy

Registration for, attendance at, or participation in the cosponsored Academy/CCA meeting, and any ancillary CCA meetings/seminars constitutes an agreement by the registrant/attendee or participant to permit the Academy/CCA to use and distribute (both now and in the future) the registrant’s, attendee’s or participant’s image in photographs, electronic productions, or other electronic marketing by the sponsor(s).

Full Sessions

Sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis as complete registrations are received.

Overcrowding

In the event of overcrowding, the Joint Sponsors (the Conference of Consulting Actuaries and the American Academy of Actuaries) reserve the right to request that individuals not confirmed as preregistered for a session attend a different session that is not overcrowded.

The sponsors reserve the right to close registration in advance of the meeting to prevent overcrowding of the meeting space reserved for this event.

Notice on CPE Credits

The credit designations for EA credits are based on the Committee’s interpretation of the CPE regulations. A final determination of EA credits is subject to the approval of the Joint Board for the Enrollment of Actuaries.

The specific requirements for continuing education are published by the Joint Board for the Enrollment of Actuaries. The Committee has taken all steps reasonably necessary and appropriate to ensure that the sessions presented at the 2018 Enrolled Actuaries Meeting meet the requirements set forth by the Joint Board. We caution, however, that we cannot guarantee attendees that each session presented will earn credit under the Joint Board’s program, either as core or noncore, inasmuch as that determination ultimately rests with the Joint Board for the Enrollment of Actuaries.

We do not give incremental credits for any sessions.

Antitrust Policy

Professional societies are subject to federal and state antitrust laws, and must constantly monitor their activities to ensure continued compliance with all antitrust regulations. This policy is published to: (1) inform the participants of the Enrolled Actuaries Meeting of the purpose of antitrust laws; (2) provide guidance to compliance at all meetings sponsored by the Conference of Consulting Actuaries and the American Academy of Actuaries; and (3) emphasize the intent of the Conference of Consulting Actuaries and the American Academy of Actuaries, through their Boards of Directors, to adhere to the law.

The Purpose of Antitrust Laws

The antitrust laws prohibit any concerted activity or combination of competitors from interfering with free competition. In other words, the primary thrust of the law is to control private economic power by protecting competition. Persons and organizations are prohibited from engaging in any action which unreasonably restrains commerce or trade (i.e., competition). Per se violations (practices presumed to be inherently wrong regardless of the motivating factors) include: agreements to fix or stabilize prices, to divide markets, to allocate production, or to impose boycotts. In essence, any concerted action that significantly diminishes rivalry among competing firms.

Guests

Tickets for guests who wish to attend the luncheons or the Tuesday reception may be purchased when attendees submit their registrations or, if available, onsite at the registration desk. A limited number of onsite tickets may or may not be available; so purchasing in advance is strongly encouraged.
